I'll be visiting Germany next month and I'm looking for more information on best ways to reach the middle Mosel from Frankfurt. It seems that a train goes between Frankfurt and Koblenz, and then from Koblenz to Bernkastel it looks like the only option is bussing it...is this true? If we rent a car, is it likely the places we stay will have a place to park it? We were interested in using trains as much as possible, and biking between the small villages to tasting appointments. Is this feasible? I definitely don't want to find myself having to take 4 busses and spend 4 hours to go somewhere that would otherwise take an hour. Any advice from other travelers who have been would be much appreciated! Thanks!
We drove everywhere in Germany and had no issues parking anywhere in the Mosel. Also, parts of the Mosel are very far from each other, especially if you're traveling to Saar or Ruwer river areas, and biking would probably take more of your day than you want it to. I don't know anything about the bus/train situation to give you guidance there.
